Posh say farewell to Jim Gannon and the Championship, as Iain Hume rescues a point to sent the visitors down. Danny Mills is a surprise starter; Ryan Bennett opens the scoring from Dominic Green’s free kick, but Hume quickly equalises from Adam Hammill’s cross. Kerrea Gilbert limps off, then James McKeown denies Martin Devaney and Jon Macken. Stephen Foster blocks Sergio Torres’s powerful effort on the stroke of half time. Romone McCrae nearly heads past his own keeper soon into his début; Luke Steele denies Lee Frecklington, who then sends an effort from distance over the bar. McKeown expertly stops Foster’s bullet header, before Mills goes off with a hamstring injury. Substitute Craig Mackail-Smith creates problems up front, but it’s Tommy Rowe who finds the net from 25 yards. Mark Robins responds by making three changes: Andy Gray beats his marker to meet Bobby Hassell’s cross, and Hume reacts quickest to put the ball past McKeown. Frecklington and Mackail-Smith have late chances and Anderson Silva’s effort is ruled off-side.
